Convective cloud and thunderstorms are visible across the northern states if
Australia, associated with a number of separate troughs in this region.

A band of mid to high level cloud stretches from the Pilbara region to the
southwest coast of WA with embedded thunderstorms, associated with a surface
trough. 

Elsewhere, a high pressure system in the Tasman Sea is directing low level cloud
along the coast of eastern VIC. Otherwise onshore flow is similarly providing
low-level cloud to the coasts of south QLD and southwestern WA. 

The remainder of the country remains mostly cloud-free.
